[image]Harrat Khaybar - NASA
Harrat Khaybar, Saudi Arabia lies in the western half of the Arabian peninsula and contains not only large expanses of sand and gravel, but also extensive lava fields known as haraat (harrat for a named field). According to scientists, the volcanic field was formed by eruptions along a long north-south linear vent system over the past 5 million years; the most recent recorded eruption took place between 600-700 A.D...

Driven by northwesterly winds, sands from northwest Saudi Arabia have accumulated in the center of the country as great rivers of dunes (cordons) that extend for hundreds of kilometers. About 320 kilometers northwest of Riyadh, the steep, almost cliff-like margin of the Ad Dahna cordon casts a shadow (right center; diagonally across the scene). Two types of dune surface appear: the tracery of numerous linear dunes (center) and a featureless sand sheet (lower left)...

[image]Internal waves in the Red Sea - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Internal waves ruffle the waters of the Red Sea between Egypt and Saudi Arabia. These underwater waves travel through the boundary between layers of water of different temperature and density. They usually happen when the tide pulls the bottom layer of dense water across a rough surface. As the bottom layer undulates, it creates waves along the boundary of the surface layer of water. Because of this movement and difference in water density, internal waves can be seen from space, as shown in this...
